In the absence of such a protection decision or other remedy, or if the disclosure party waives it, the receiving party may issue that party (and only that party) confidential information which, according to the written submissions of counsel reasonably acceptable to the party that makes it reasonable, is legally required to disclose or is required to disclose; Assuming that the contracting party receiving reasonable effort is necessary to reliably ensure that confidential treatments receive confidential information that is disclosed in this manner; or Mutual NDAs are also often used when start-up companies are looking for investors.
